Commercials – we all hate them. They are a necessary evil in our media world but for the most part they are boring, insulting or just downright stupid. However every once in a while there is a bright ray of cool that shows up on the horizon and we actually have a chance to watch a commercial that is worth our time to stop and enjoy.
Here’s six commercials that I found while cruising the net that I think rise to that high bar of worth watching if only because they are so damn cool.
Nike – Leave Nothing
I’m not a big sports fan so already sports related commercials are a hard sell but this one from Nike caught my eye. There is also an extended version of it here.
Barclays – Fake
This ad from Barclays has a real touch of the Twilight Zone to it. Then they had to ruin it by letting us know it’s all about money.
Audi – Intelligently Combined
Sorry but they had me at the transparent Rubic’s Cube of car parts.
Guinness – Music Machine
Who would have thought a head of beer could play such cool music
Levi’s – Knockout
My jaw still hurts.
Phillips – Carousel
Saving the best for last. This is just a freaking awesome commercial and there is also a “how’d they do that” video as well over here.
